Semester: summer semester

This lecture is for students of the master program, which imparts the fact that processes are ubiquitous in mechanical engineering. Processes are a key success factor, especially in product development. Within the scope of the lecture, characteristic processes are identified based on process theory, and a reference model for product development and specific methods are presented to meet the process objectives. Students should be able to understand the processes in product development. They should be familiar with the main work methods, and they should develop skills to recognize the progress in processes and to control process flow. Process modeling -analysis -simulation and optimization are important competencies that have to be mastered.

On successful completion of this module, students should be able to:

  • Describe the product creation process
  • Identify process aims and specify expected process results systematically
  • Configure sub-processes and the link between them
  • Apply methods of process modelling, analysis, simulation, and optimization
  • Evaluate acquired process results.

Further information and material will be available in moodle.
